Early Monday, news broke that the so-called bipartisan debate commission changed the rules to the upcoming debate without even speaking to the campaigns.
Well, they actually didn’t need to speak to Biden because the change benefited him big league.
After Trump got the news of the change, which he learned on-air during an interview, he gave the idea of doing a virtual debate a big thumbs down.
Waste of Time
This was something I had to think long and hard about before writing on it because I truly believe Trump needs as much exposure as possible right now.
He needs to go after Biden on his record and past corruption and blatantly call out Biden on his “plan,” which is mostly stolen from Trump’s current agenda (speaking on the pandemic).
The new change, however, severely benefits Biden if for no other reason than he can be fed answers by his handlers, as we have seen in other interviews.
This was Trump’s reaction to the news…
Trump’s campaign manager, Bill Stepien, explained further, stating, “That’s not what debates are about or how they’re done.
“Here are the facts: President Trump will have posted multiple negative tests prior to the debate, so there is no need for this unilateral declaration.
“The safety of all involved can easily be achieved without canceling a chance for voters to see both candidates go head to head.”
“We’ll pass on this sad excuse to bail out Joe Biden and do a rally instead.”
I really wanted to see this debate because I think Trump would have learned from the negative reaction from the first debate as well as seeing how Pence just destroyed Kamala Harris last night.
Having said that, right now, I think this is the right move.
This could change, however, if Trump tests negative before the weekend.
If that happens, his campaign could put significant pressure on the commission to restore the original format.
If not, we simply cannot allow Biden to sit in his basement and give the answers that someone is writing for him on a teleprompter.
